So, before I begin the poem, I have to include a note.

The last name of my pseudonym is German for dragonflies. So this literally did not surprise me. I would have been more surprised if they came up with something entirely different.


Little dragonflies

Zooming over the pond

Right before my eyes

Landing on a grass frond.


Blue, green, ruby red

Zipping gayly about

For a while, I pled

To end up in their route.


Finally, one lands

Cautiously watching

It lands on my hand

Though I'm not plotting.


Finally, if flies away

Leaving me to dumb to say

What happened to me this day

In my memory, it'll stay.
